The Gospel of the Kingdom –
In Ephesians 1, the apostle Paul lists seven ingredients in the Gospel of the Kingdom, of which the salvation of our souls is only one. The purpose of the Kingdom of God is not “salvation,” but that “Heaven and earth will be united under one head—Jesus Christ.” “Creation will be liberated from its bondage to decay” through the intervention of “the last Adam.” “He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet.” At the heart of the Kingdom of God is a new authority for transforming the earth around us. When Jesus returns, the renewing of all Creation will surge with new energy and power. Just as Jesus took care of the problem of sin during His first advent, during His second advent, He will destroy all satanic deception. Imagine what that will look like!
